Anyone you want to strangle more than the "notebooks and jeans" teacher?

    Ha...I'm surprised I haven't seen the Target commercial yet! That Staples commercial must be about 10 years old, but they always do play it around now. I like the Alice Cooper commercial, too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dyfqvrx9Jx0

    I just said this last night to DH and DS! They didn't think it was a big deal since women are probably buying Tide (I think that's the product). And this is coming from DH who really does help out around the house, shops, cleans,etc. I thought he should dislike it.

    Love the Staples one. Can't say Notebooks and Jeans is any more annoying than most commercials. We have Tivo so it's rare I see any commercials.

    I have seen one referencing parents but it really annoys me. BOTH my parents rock and are supportive :) BF reminded me how much research goes into the commercials tho.

    Great comment. As a society we frequently forget to thank dads! I have a great dad. I know there are a lot of great dads out there.

    I never payed close enough attention to realize what this commercial was even saying but I noticed it a bunch of times. I would say for that reason it is an ineffective commercial.

    The only Target commercial I've seen for back to school is the glitter one last year, which I enjoyed. Not sure why we don't see more...

    Sad to say, I would totally sing that to my students. I came up with a class version of "All Star" and I have made a version "I Love Rock 'n' Roll" for my room this year. (My theme is Rock Stars.):whistle:

    Do all 80's songs need creepy music videos. Some of the music videos from the 80's used to give me nightmares and this commercial reminds me of those videos.
